The final deadline to apply for admission to the PharmD program for September 2014 has now passed. 

Please note: the Pearson Group (the administrators of the PCAT examination) have scheduled additional PCAT examinations to the schedule published on the PCAT website.

It is not necessary for applicants to have final grades in the required subjects to submit an application. If your courses are still in progress, or will begin in January, please enter "IP" (In Progress) when prompted to list course codes and grades. 


Welcome to the Leslie Dan Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Toronto. Thank you for your interest in our Doctor of Pharmacy (PharmD) program. The PharmD program at U of T replaces the Bachelor of Science in Pharmacy program, and provides graduates with all of the knowledge and skills required to become licensed pharmacists.

As Canada’s leading pharmacy educator and pharmaceutical sciences research centre, our goal is to develop the healthcare leaders of tomorrow. As a result, students in the PharmD program are pushed to excel through a combination of coursework, laboratory instruction and hands-on learning, and experiential rotations in community, hospital, and other healthcare settings.

Together, the skills, knowledge, and experience acquired through the four years of this demanding program prepare our graduates to become successful front-line healthcare practitioners and leaders in the healthcare field.

As Canada’s most trusted health professionals, pharmacists occupy a special place in the community and in the healthcare system. To be successful in this multifaceted role, individuals must be outgoing, hardworking, and possess strong critical-reasoning and problem-solving skills.
